Playing Australia: Regional Performing Arts Touring Fund
The Regional Performing Arts Touring program supports performing arts to reach regional and remote communities across Australia. Grants are available to support the net touring costs associated with a national tour. There is no limit on the amount that can be requested.
Playing Australia is open to applications for funding with some adjustments to the guidelines accounting for COVID-19 conditions.
These adjustments take account of:
- current extenuating circumstances for producers and presenters, allowing for flexibility within tours
- additional costs which may be required for the safe delivery of tours
- potential for state border closures and varying conditions between states and regions
- ongoing financial implications of COVID-19.
Additional investment for regional touring in 2021
We also welcome the additional investment of $5m for the Playing Australia Regional Recovery Investment 2021 announced by the Arts Minister, Mr Paul Fletcher MP in late April. The final round to disburse this additional investment closes on 12 October 2021.
The first closing date for the reconfigured Playing Australia Project Investment category will be in March 2022. This will also be the closing date for applications for Playing Australia Multi-Year Investment 2023-2025.
